Giveaway Time! Win Freddy Krueger Soap From Spellbound Soapworks!

Photobucket

A few weeks back I posted a picture of a unique bar of Freddy Krueger soap on the Freddy In Space Facebook page, teasing that it would soon be given away here on the blog. The response was overwhelmingly positive, but I wanted to hold off on the giveaway until all the Walking Dead giveaway fun was over. Now that it is, it's finally time I part with the coolest bar of soap of all time. Damn you for splitting us apart!!

I don't remember exactly how I discovered Spellbound Soapworks, but I somehow stumbled upon the site several weeks back, during my nightly travels around the web. I immediately knew I had to make a post about the company, but I decided to take things one step further and e-mail the owner, Maura Buckley, to see if she'd be up for supplying a bar of her handmade soap for a giveaway (giving away shit = always cooler than merely telling you about shit). As you've probably gathered by now, she said yes. So let's all send out a big thank you to Maura for her generosity. Thank you, Maura!

It was after a visit to a horror convention in 2003 that Maura started her company, inspired by the thick clouds of geek fan body odor. She figured that maybe if she crafted delicious smelling bars of soap in the likenesses of our favorite horror & sci-fi icons, we'd be motivated to get clean. And thus, Spellbound Soapworks was born. Ever since, horror conventions have smelled just a little bit better.

OK so that's not true at all, but Maura did launch the company in 2003 and she does specialize in handmade bars of glycerin soap sculpted in the likenesses of geek icons, everyone from Leatherface to The Toxic Avenger, Jack Skellington to Regan MacNeil. Sculpted by her sister Chris, hand-painted and infused with trademark scents such as 'All Hallows Eve' & 'The Power Of Spice Compels You', the unique bars of soap are truly unlike any you can get anywhere else, both beautiful display pieces as well as delicious smelling cleaning implements. In other words, you can prop Toxie up on your sink counter or use him to clean your balls ... the choice is entirely up to you.

Maura asked me which bar of soap I wanted to do a giveaway for and naturally, I chose Freddy Krueger. Part of Spellbound's 'Cinema Slashers' line, Freddy is infused with a scent called 'Elm Street', filled with "notes of geranium, bergamot, and rich Indian spices; well rounded with notes of amber, woods, and musk." I don't know what the hell a bergamot is but I will say that this bad boy has been sitting in my room for a couple weeks and let me tell you, it smells absolutely delicious, even just sitting here on my desk in its shrink wrap. Leads me to believe that even if you just want to keep Maura's soaps as display pieces in your bathroom, they will still do their job of making you and your home smell that much better!

OK enough babbling. You want the Freddy soap? All you've gotta do to enter is leave me a comment below with your e-mail address and your personal answer to the following question ...

- Which horror icon do you think smells the absolute worst, and why?

Entries will be accepted through next Thursday, March 29th, at midnight, so make sure to get your comments in by then. Good luck to all!

Head over to Spellbound Soapworks for more "sinister suds for sullied souls." If you just want regular shaped bars of soap, Maura's got ya covered there too, with unique scents including Ectoplasm, Graveyard Dirt & Swamp Thing. She's truly got a little something for everyone, whether you love horror or just want to smell good enough to eat!

Leartherface has to smell the worst. The Texas heat is bad enough, but imagine it while wearing an extra layer of skin and doing a crazy dance with a chainsaw...

Jason. He is basically a zombie that is rotting from the inside out. He has been covered in toxic sewage and with his mom being dead he has no one to wipe his bum. Also anyone that has maggots on their face has has to be filthy downstairs.

I would think Jason smells the worst. Like rot, sewage and decay. Yumm! Meanwhile Freddy smells like burnt Old Spice, mmmmm.

Raven Homicide said...

Tarman from The Return of the Living Dead.... He was a corpse sealed in a drum for a longtime so much the liquid turn to gunk. That had to smell halla bad.

My answer is Jason Voorhees. Dude HAS to stink. You seen his shack, right? Remember how he looked when he came out of the water during the dream sequence of the first film? Dream or not, he looked fuckin' rank. Dude's also been buried, and I'm fairly certain he didn't shower after resurrection. Then, he got chained to a rock and left under Crystal lake for a pretty damn long period of time between part 6 and 7. Once again, resurrection, no shower. Same goes from part 7 to 8. Then he got drug to hell and came back... again, I doubt he showered.

Gotta be Jason, hoss. He's literally been to hell and back.

The Wolf Man: like the world's worst wet dog smell.

The Wolfman..... it can't be easy to cut shit out of his fur.

Jason, Of course the comments have already been made that he's dead and rotting. Also he has wore the same clothing since Part 3. No telling when he last took a bath and he walks in and out of water which should give his clothes a mildew smell.

I'd say Leatherface has to smell the worst. Chasing people all day, wielding a heavy chainsaw, wearing a mask, constantly getting blood splattered all over you, and living in a country type setting? You know that's got to stink.

jenn_dorris@yahoo.com said...

Obviously Leatherface. His whole life revolves around rotten meat, dead flesh and human face masks. Yep.... I bet he smells funky.

Cat said...

That's a tricky one. I mean, Jason's been waterlogged for 30 years, and is a zombie practically.. so bloated rotting corpse smell..

But then you have Leatherface, who chops people up in Texas, as hot as hell down there. But who knows? Maybe Leatherface has some frilly soaps in his bathroom. That just gave me the weirdest mental image of Leatherface using a huge eagle claw tub with lavender bath beads and a loofah.

MW said...

My gut reaction is Leatherface, because I have smelly coworkers that stink just from eating loud food, so I can only imagine what flesh strapped to your face would smell like if Leatherface is as close of a talker as my fellow employees are.

I would think Freddy K smells the worst..i Mean come one...all that burnt flesh!!!

VegasVaVoom said...

I agree it HAS to be Jason. Rotting corpse, been buried, drowned TWICE, imagine the mildew alone. fucken eww. Hit with lightning. Add the burnt flesh and maybe a lil hair? who knows.. Had toxic waste dumped on him. Must I go on? lol. So he prob smells 10 times worse than sex panther cologne. hahaha. U stay classy Freddy In Space :)

Morphine said...

Tarman from ROTLD. He's a rotting corpse, preserved in Trioxin under pressure (Which would be sure to infuse Tarmans flesh with the chemical). Once opened he would smells like decomposition and horrible chemicals. Which would make it seem even worse because you can smell the putrid scent and see him..dripping.

I love Tarman but I don't want to smell him.

Gehara. I know Gehara is kind of obscure ( a long haired kaiju short film ) but man that creature would have to stink.

It's a hairy kaiju so you get the wet dog smell mixed with lizard stink.

Then some of it's hair gets set on fire so you have burning hair, wet dog, and lizard stink in one giant package.

Then it's known for having extremely bad breathe. So you have extremely bad breathe, burning hair, wet dog, and lizard stink in one giant package.

Yeah, Gehara FTW.

Dead Girl. If you've ever been in a teenagers room when they haven't, uh, changed the sheets ina while you'll know the stale sex smell. Add in various guys sweat and her dead flesh and there you go.

Erin Slasher said...

I would say Jason from the later Friday movies, after he turned all slimy and oozy. Wet rotting smell has got to be the worst. And you know that dude doesn't shower. Come to think of it, I'm not entirely sure how he could have managed to actually sneak up on anyone. Stupid teenagers and their horny non-smelling noses.

Personally, I believe that The Wolfman would have to smell the worst. Think about it. All that fur? All those nights of feeding? So much blood and guts comes from that! The entrails would stick in his fur, and honestly, would smell rather horrible. Plus, animals in general don't smell wonderful. Add those things together, and I think my answer is correct.

Freddy easily smells the worst. You ever caught a whiff of a burnt weenie? And Nightmare 1 showed us that he's filled with egg yoke, so between those two scents, you can imagine how powerful of a stench it can be. What a amazingly horrid combination!

Which horror icon do you think smells the absolute worst, and why?

I would say Jason probably smells the worst considering his body is basically a decade old infinitely rotting body that is constantly either buried underground or covered in moss in the lake!

I would have to say Dracula or The Creature from the Black lagoon would be the smelliest. Dracula is a blood sucker and un dead. Have you ever smelled large amounts of old or new blood? Its pretty bad. Not to mention the the succubus es he keeps around. And well the Creature is pretty self explanatory. Hell Im sure Renfield is pretty ripe himself!

Mikey Venture said...

I would have to say hands down Jason Voorhees.

You know that guy has to smell like water logged hamburger meat, racoons turds and an 60 year old unwashed nut sack. I could never get caught by Jason, I could smell him coming from a mile away.

Dave said...

First off, I would argue that Wolfman's bad smell is only temporary since he isn't a wolf for very long and he may not even have to take a dump in that short time, therefore avoiding being encrusted with feces, entirely.

Jason spends a lot of time in the water, so maybe that could alleviate some odors.

Freddy just might smell like delicious BBQ, you never know.

I think, like many on here, that the best candidate is Leatherface.
It's extremely hot all the time, he wears masks made from dead flesh, which also don't allow his own skin to breathe underneath. He spends a lot of time getting dirty butchering meat, and his clothes must absorb a lot of chainsaw fumes. As anyone who has seen Fight Club knows, you can make soap pretty easily from human fat, but we've never seen Leatherface doing any such thing, which just goes to show that the dude is just lazy and clearly skips bathing and probably doing laundry and house cleaning, too. He's got chicken feathers and rusty cans laying around, so his house is clearly filthy as well. His entire life and surroundings is nothing but filth.

In a perfect world, all horror icons would smell like the Gingerdead Man.

I have to go with Jason. I mean the dude been underwater, buried etc. He got flesh falling off him. He never changes clothes. I am thinking that's several reasons why.

Jen B said...

I was going to say Jason Vorhees for the obvious reasons, but then I remembered Leatherface. The guy has to smell awful.

Pretty sure he's never had a bath in his life and he's always got dead skin on his face....Plus with what he eats, breath is gonna be gag inducing as well.

ZOMBIE HAYES said...

I think Jason Vorhees would smell the worst...as many times as he has be buried and killed...he has to be pretty rank!


Thanks!

Definitely Jason. He's a walking rotting corpse.

Mike Of The Living said...

I've gotta go with Frankenstein's monster on this one. Think about it: He was stitched together from various other dead bodies, so there's that. But what if one dead guy had been a life-long bath hater? What if another suffered from athlete's foot? Maybe one of the guys died from a nasty gangrene infection? These are things to think about.

Stacy said...

Angela from Sleepaway Camp...just sweaty balls...yuck.

Frankenstein's monster wins, hands down. He was stitched together from dead bodies, so there's that. But let's explore: what if one dead guy had dies from a nasty gangrene infection? What if another was not the keenest wiper? People, what if one had athlete's foot? Not to mention his dead greasy hair? Ewwww.
Combine that and you definitely have a recipe for straight up nostril-rape.

Lee said...

I'm gonna have to say Frankensteins Monster. Not only is he made up of dead flesh, he was also brought to life by electricity. So it's burnt, rotted flesh. I use to be an embalmer, so trust me, I've smelt burnt rotted flesh and it would make you spew once it hits your face. And this dude is walking around with this, so it's only gonna be worst.
